MINNEAPOLIS - Angels star Mike Trout and Tigers star Miguel Cabrera have become linked after the past two MVP races, which Cabrera won with Trout finishing as the runner-up each time. Tuesday in the 2014 MLB All-Star Game, they both did what they do best: Helped their team score some runs.

First, Trout followed up Derek Jeter's leadoff double with a triple to right:

After a Robinson Cano strikeout, Cabrera went yard:

Cabrera's shot gave the AL a 3-0 lead, though the NL would trim it to 3-2 in the top of the second.

Cabrera's homer was the first for a Tigers player in an All-Star Game since Lou Whitaker went deep in 1986.

And though we'll never see it happen, it was fun just for one night to dream about a lineup that contains both Trout and Cabrera. That's one of the reasons the All-Star Game is great.
